Giles Hutchins

Giles Hutchins is a management consultant with over 15 years of business and IT transformation experience, formerly with KPMG and Atos International. His passion is exploring ways of applying nature’s inspiration to sustainable business transformation. Drawing on a range of theories and practices (such as biomimicry, cradle-to-cradle and industrial ecology), he applies them to the challenges businesses face today, providing practical insight and guidance to help organisations redesign for resilience in these volatile times.

He engages with a number of leading non-profit organisations, such as the Royal Botanic Gardens Kew, Earthwatch, Schumacher College and The World Wildlife Fund, and regularly guest-lectures at leading universities and presents at conferences on sustainable business.

In 2009, he co-founded a group of specialists in ‘Business Inspired By Nature’ called Biomimicry for Creative Innovation (BCI), and has the great pleasure of working collaboratively with some of the best people in ecological thinking for radical transformation. In 2011, as Global Head of Sustainability Solutions for Atos International, Giles contributed to successfully ensuring that Firm of The Future and Sustainable Business became part of the DNA of the company, which employs 78,000 people in over 40 countries.
